Not a resort
We have been back to this place 2 times for a month each time. We love the location. The accomidations are adequate. We had everything we needed. It is quite rustic which suits us but not for everyone. The only thing that would stop us from going back is the Beach bar next door. It has extremely large speakers and can go on till the early hours. It makes your whole being vibrate. If it wasn't for that we would make this our annual vacation.
A true Laborie experience!!
The majority of our time on the island was spent in Laborie and we loved it! If you’re looking for a luxury St Lucian vacation this is not the place for you, but if you want a true island experience this is an awesome place to stay. The apartment overlooks the bay with the roar of the waters below. Whoever complained about needing earplugs at night because of the waves needed a vacation more than we did. It’s mesmerizing and we had no trouble sleeping. In fact, when we stayed in Rodney Bay I missed the waves. The noisiest aspect is Rudy John Beach and the bar playing very loud music, but you get used to it and it adds to your island experience. We were also here during the holidays which had a lot to do with the noise. The apartment is functional with everything you really need. A bath, bed, fridge and WiFi. It’s within walking distance to town and literally footsteps from the beach. Keep in mind this is a fishing town and the beach is not the best I’ve been to, but it’s certainly very popular here. We can not say enough about Tyrone. He is amazing. He picked us up at the airport, hooked us up with Mama Tilly, a ride to Castries and made sure we were comfortable the entire time we were here. He came over several times to check in on us, and we passed his own house numerous times where he made sure to speak to us. We ate all of our meals at Mama Tilly’s. She is a genuine soul. She even cooked me a special request of black eyed peas and cabbage on New Year’s, indulged us with the local juice after a night of too much rum, and gave us an island parting gift. We were invited by our local apartment neighbors to share their rum and dinner and they became fast friends; which we hung out with on several occasions. The people of St Lucia are humble and friendly. We felt very safe walking around town and the beach, and inside our apartment. For the price paid this apartment it truly is a gem. We came with no expectations and just went with the flow. Our vacation was awesome and turned into an amazing experience with a boatload of memories, photos and some new friends. If we ever come back to the island we would book this place without a second thought. Our flight was over an hour late and we arrived on a holiday. The grocery was closed so make sure you come prepared with essentials to tide you over. (Hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper, snacks,a few bottled waters, coffee, etc). We hope your stay will be just as incredible as ours!!
The apartment is as described, small local village, good beach.
On our 2nd day at the apartment the municipal water was under emergency construction and we had no running water. Officials said it would only last 24 hours. Not sure we booked another rental. We contacted the owners who apologized and offered us a full refund no questions asked. We plan on returning to St. Lucia in the fall and would consider this property.
Great little rental in the nicest coastal community
We loved our stay here in Laborie! We had a rental car and drove around most of the island and Laborie was our favourite little town. It was laid back and quiet with just enough going on plus the beach was right there. You could walk to town in 5-10 minutes through the town or along the beach
The rental was nothing fancy but was clean and had everything we need. We also loved having the balcony to hang out on, watch the sunset and the stars at night.
Tyrone and the team were fantastic and made sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The cleaning lady brought us fresh towels throughout our stay and even a few homemade googies for easter.
The one drawback: It is LOUD. Your are right above the water where the waves crash into the edge. It is fine during the day but at night it is very loud and relentless. Sounds like there is a huge storm outside all night long shaking the place. If you are a light sleeper this may be a deterrent. We would probably still stay there again and either know we're not going to get a full night sleep or bring ear plugs!
Decent no-frills place to stay but don't expect a sandy beach on your doorstep
First of all, the pictures of the nice beach below the balcony are misleading. Not sure if the photos are old or if water levels differ significantly by time of year, but we were there at the beginning of April and there was no visible sand whatsoever - it was very rocky and the water came right up to the shore.
The place itself was good enough for our purposes. We spent a lot of time out on the balcony watching the waves crash in and reading, visiting, and having drinks - very relaxing. We did quite a bit of our own cooking, so one thing that would've been nice was a barbecue. The bed was old and uncomfortable and should be replaced. There is no air conditioning, so expect to sleep with the fan blowing on you all night. I also recommend bringing ear plugs, as the waves hitting the rocks is very loud. It says there is internet, but we didn't see any available wi-fi networks.
As for location, it's a very short walk down to the beach park and there is a long stretch of beach you can walk along to find a space to hang out. It was about a 10-15 minute walk to the heart of Laborie, where there isn't too much going on but there are a few grocery stores and bars. The people were very friendly and we always felt safe walking around, day or night. Be sure to check out Mama Tilly's for supper. Also recommend going to Salt Rush Cafe down by the pier.
The property manager, Tyrone, was very friendly and hospitable. We appreciated him picking us up at the airport (no cost) and asking us if we needed anything every time we walked by his place en route to the town.
All in all, if you're like us and don't care about luxury while on vacation, this place will do just fine. I do, however, find it a bit overpriced. For a similar rate, we stayed at a place in Soufriere, a town where there is a lot more going on in terms of attractions, that was newly built and had air conditioning and wi-fi.
